Micanopy Florida is a scenic location for a fall arts and crafts festival. Micanopy is the town that time forgot. This quiet little town bustles with activity as the vendors pour into town and fill Cholokka Boulevard. Many local artists, crafters, and musicians participate in the festival, as well as other artists from across the southeast. The tradition and ever evolving quality of the show attracts a broad range of the buying public. Along with the two hundred displays of arts and crafts there are many other attractions. The main stage plays host to a variety of good time music throughout the festival and an old time auction of items donated by participating vendors on Saturday afternoon.
Today, Micanopy has entered the new century with strong roots to the past
It maintains the small town atmosphere as evident by the involvement of the local citizenry. Along with the many homes being restored, our town boasts an array of historic landmarks; the Micanopy Historical Society Museum and Archives, a variety of shops of art, rare books, antiques, casual eateries, and one of the finest Bed and Breakfasts in the area. Also, many beautification improvements have been made along the boulevard. This environment makes the perfect setting for one of the town's biggest events, The Micanopy Fall Harvest Festival!
For the past 38 years, thousands have gathered under the old oak trees for the Micanopy Fall Harvest Festival. The festival is sponsored by a committee comprised of fifteen local nonprofit groups ranging from churches to youth groups to historical organizations. All of the proceeds from the festival go back to these groups to assist in their annual operating costs.
The many local artists, crafters, and musicians, represent works from all over the southeast. The tradition and ever-evolving quality of the show attracts a broad range of the buying public. Along with over two hundred displays of arts and crafts, there are other attractions.
